Mute staff groups

I'm currently working on a fairly large big band score and I've made a few changes to my work methods to try and make things easier.  By and large this has worked very well, but it has also highlighted what I think might be a useful addition.

I would like to be able to mute/unmute staves based on which groups they're part of, similar to the way we can currently make staff groups visible/invisible in the editor.

Comments anyone?

We will review this, since this is already what is done in Page Setup Contents. However, if it doesn't happen, a user tool could also do this rather easily.

FWIW, I like the idea of having this feature, preferably as part of the program.  I suspect I'm not the only one who isn't terribly comfortable with user tools.

Building on this, if there were some mechanism to embed some StaffProperties groups into the song file in a way that would be recognized by NWC's Viewer, I suspect that the "choir people" would be very happy.

Thanks Eric.

Thanks Eric - already trying it in the beta - works exactly as I'd hoped :)
